I really enjoyed this quirky little film
I had the video lying around in my apartment for a long time and I never really bothered to watch it because it didn't look too promising. But one night I finally decided to watch it and I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed CONFESSIONS OF A HITMAN. The best thing in the movie is James Remar, who creates a very interesting character that's funny, touching, annoying and a little dangerous. The other actors are also good, certainly the driver, but Remar makes the movie. The cinematography was, at certain points, beautiful. Death Valley never looked so beautiful. And the music was excellent. The story is filled with quirky little details which create an intimate narrative I rarely see in movies these days and though the film might prove underwhelming for those who are used to being hit over the head with Hollywood's sledgehammer-style of filmmaking, I thought the low key approach of the direction was refreshing, certainly for a story about the mob. Thumbs up!
